Things are starting to happen!

I've recently heard from my agent, Luigi Bonomi, who I’m delighted to report loves the redraft of my novel “Covenant”. He’s asked for a few more subtle changes to individual passages, but basically that’s it, and I'm to send him the finished manuscript by the end of this week.

The really great news is that he’s intending to submit to publishers next week, with the aim of selling the book at the Frankfurt International Book Fair on October 5th. I’m not sure how he goes about this, but I’d assume it will involve some kind of title auction – provided there are publishers interested in the book of course!

It’s all very exciting, and I feel as though I’m on the cusp of something great: my first novel finally signed to a publisher. Fingers crossed, and I'll add extra updates here as soon as I hear anything…
